one lucky leprechaun

OK, so when it comes to St. Patty's Day I am pretty clueless. Here is what I know...I am 1/4 Irish...thanks to my super-Irish grandfather, George Sculley. I also know that St. Patrick's Day is the perfect excuse for bars to make a big deal out of selling green beer and food that is supposedly Irish. I must admit that it is a fun holiday and since Olivia is 1/8 Irish I thought it would be fun to make this little video.

I had a great deal of trouble posting the actual video so I had to settle with the link instead. You must click on One Lucky Leprechaun, it is sure to put a smile on your face. And yes...that is Olivia enjoying a nice green beer...her favorite!

Since part of my family is full Irish I have experienced some fun Irish things over the years. I can't say I am a big fan of the food...not exactly my cup of tea. But the one thing I really love are all of the great Irish toasts. I have heard many but this is my favorite...

There are short ships.
And there are long ships.
There are ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships are friendships.
May they ever be!

So for all of you Irish out there...Happy St. Patty's Day to ya!

Livie is the cutest little leprechaun ever. Great Grandma and I really enjoyed watching the video, we really laughed. I think Great Grandma George is smiling down on her right now...

I agree with Aunt Sue Sue. Our dad loved to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and he would be very happy to see Miss O celebrating as well. She is one cute leprechaun.
